Announcing a New Guide to Assist Communities with the Investment of Available Resources to Leverage Additional Funding

Setting the Stage for Leveraging Resources for Brownfields Revitalization

Many communities struggle to find and attract sufficient funding for brownfields redevelopment projects. It can be difficult for communities to identify how best to invest limited local resources. Sound initial investments of local funds can open opportunities for additional public funds and attract the interest and support of outside investors and lead to additional funding. This guide was developed by EPA to assist communities in overcoming the challenges of making sound investment decisions to attract additional resources for community revitalization.
